DDI strives to support individuals by providing services that allow them to live in their own homes and be a part of their community. These services enable adult participants to make choices, receive needed services and live more independently in their own home or in the family home.
Our Supported Living Services for individuals include:
- training and assistance with household tasks such as cooking, laundry, cleaning and other household maintenance tasks.
- assistance with areas such as self-advocacy, understanding complicated health and safety issues, social and relationship issues, problem solving and decision making through methods like instructing, providing experiences, modeling, and advising.
- assistance with Activities of Daily Living (ADL's) such as hygiene, bathing, eating, dressing, grooming, toileting, and transferring. With personal care supports, you can even get help with shopping, money management, meal planning, grocery shopping, budgeting, and bill paying.
